Artist's Description

Coyote Dance written by Rhonda Strickland©
Please listen to the music (below) as it enhances the viewing/reading experience.

In olden times
As legend is told.
When the land was free,
And trees were not old.

There lived a young man
So brave and so true
Who ran with coyotes
Who loved to pursue

The wonders of freedom.
Of the eagles in flight,
The flowing of rivers
The blackness of night.

It is said that he was chief
Of all his eyes saw
Yet he was fair and was kind
When it came to the law.

He had many fine sons
Who grew strong and so tall
Who followed in his ways
Who heard natures true call.

When he passed he was buried
With his arrows and bow
His sons sang in his honor.
While his sad people cried low.

When the night comes to honor him
You may hear, just by chance,
The howls from the great hills.
The sound of the Coyote Dance.

No political or spiritual assertions to go along with this image. Just a love of this music. I have this CD and it’s a wonderfully crafted album by Robbie Robertson & the Red Road Ensemble. It came onto my iPod and I was inspired to create this image.

Created from the images below. A photo I took of a beautiful wall in a restaurant and a Wisteria bush at a nearby park. Taken with my Nikon CP8400. Then added several fractals created in Incendia & Apophysis. Mirrored in PSP, layered with textures using blend modes and overlays in PSCS2. Used Fractalius filter as a texturing layer.
Photos shot with a Nikon CP8400 in Feb. & Mar. 2010
